So, Today I am one sad Mama..... After Whitney's two Bridal Showers (pictures will come soon) last week, my body decided to collect a virus. I have been sick since Monday night, taking meds every four to six hours and today I am still walking around like a Zombie. I have been trying so very hard to get back on my feet, but every time I do, I fall back into bed. I called the doctor he said I will be down for at least a week and that I would be contagious until Sunday.
So, what does all that mean?
I am going to miss Whitney's two Bridal Showers in JD's home state of Alabama. I have been so careful to watch everything I was doing but still my body could not hold up. The good thing, as always my MOM, sister and niece are stepping in. When I turned thirty and started having health problems, my sister stepped in to be like a second MOM to my children. Our children grew up as brothers and sisters, loving and watching over each other. I never would wish my problems on anyone, but if you have health problems, feel blessed to be able to turn to your family. You never know what will happen in life.... One day you are healthy and able to do so much and the next day you are swept right off your feet. I believe that God blessed us with family so that we could love and take care of each other. My sister has exceeded her requirements of a good, devoted sister and aunt. I really don't know how these weddings will happen without the constant, undeserving sacrifices she has made to me. I can never repay her, can never express the gratitude I have to her. I can only thank her and thank the One that created her. I encourage all of you to love each other as much as possible, know that we are not promised tomorrow and take care of those around you. Mama, Sonya and Lauren I love you with all of my heart and I am so proud to have you representing me this weekend at Whit's showers. I ask for you continued prayers that I can get through the graduations, parties and finally the weddings coming up. I feel so blessed to have all of this happening now as I am getting ready to celebrate my 50th birthday. God is so good to me and it is all the time.
